meaningful oversight. beyond the straightforward application of the law to specific and sometimes highly classified circumstances, fisa court rulings may include substantive interpretations of governing legal authorities. as is true in every court called on a construed statutory text, fisa applications are influential in determining the contours of the government' surveillance authorities. unlike specific collections which are properly classified in many instances, i believe that the fisa court's substantive legal interpretation of statutory authorities should be made public. a hallmark of the rule of law which is a bedrock principle upon which our nation is founded, mr. president, is that the requirements of law must be made publicly available, available for review, available for the scrutiny of the average american. the merkley-lee amendment establishes a cautious and reasonable process for declassification consistent with the rule of law. its procedures are limited in three key respects: first, the pathway for declassification applies only to the most important decisions that include

of renewable energy. these things are some of the changes in environmental law relative to emissions -- they are all part of that effort. we have got to do more. we have to build on that. but it is certainly a commitment. one thing we recognize is that it does not have to be a competition between our economy and our health, because renewable energy and clean energy have economic benefits that are pronounced, and people understand that. so we highlighted the issues we felt needed to be highlighted for voters who are going to make the decision in the election, but the president's agenda is reflected in his work, and i expect he will continue to work hard on this issue is. >> let's take these last questions as we wrap this up. >> thanks for coming back to the university of chicago. i have a quick follow up. yourding super pac's -- just now reclaim your concerns about unlimited money in campaign financing. on the other hand, we saw earlier today had democrats were already oiling up their machines for 2014 and 2016. what are the prospects for repealing citizens united or comprehensive cam

to courages, thanks to a 1950s law for the cost of milk. the cost could double if congress doesn't -- doesn't come up with a deal by january 1st. >> reporter: cows on the cliff or at least the milk. what all eyes are on the fiscal cliff, another deadline is approaching, the milk cliff. it's part of a farm bill with as much as $35 billion in cuts. if the bill doesn't make it through congress before the end of the year, the government will be forced to find vast qualities of milk under the trueman era law and that could send consumer milk prices as high as $6 to $8 a gallon because the government would be obligated to pay twice the wholesale rate under the 1949 rule. the farmers would sell their milk to the government first and prompting a shortage in commercial supplies spiking the price consumers pay. >> the farm bill is like the low-hanging ornament on the congressional christmas tree that if they just embrace it, they can automatically come up with tips of billions of dollars in budget savings. >> reporter: the problem is the bill's stuck in the house and there appears to be no political

on the health care law and its place in this debate. guest: is not part of the fiscal cliff. there is a tax increase going into effect because of the health reform act. it is not considered part of the fiscal cliff. in terms of immediate damage to the economy, the fiscal cliff has the potential to do more damage more quickly. there are other aspects of obamacare that are positive in terms of continued coverage for children up to 26 and a variety of things. every time i walk into an emergency room, i get angry at the number of people i have to in that -- i have to end up paying for basic health care for. people who walk in to get treated for a cold is something we all end up paying for. to the extent we can get health care for some of these folks in a way that would prevent the expenses from happening is a positive issue to be looking at as well. guest: if you are over 65 and can get medicare, there should not be any reason your health care or what the doctor can do for you will change with the new year. even if you are concerned about the doctor payments, that will be taken care of shortly.

. with regard to legal immigration, think the rule ofn law is remaining the best way oe making sure that people don't come into the country illegally. the risk of an amnesty that is basically all that we are talking about unfortunately is amnesty. every amnesty in the past weather in europe or in then united states has had the effect of attracting more people in the country illegally in the hopes of a future amnesty. lou: years ago i started talking about a rational, humane immigration policy that would take intocy account all of the concerns about displacement of those who were in this country illegally, a due process make a determination of how work permits and legal status occurred. that is not enough.th the activist groups in this country t insist upon one thing, it is remarkable demand in my eyes, they insist upon amnesty and this president is insisting upon amnesty. what is your reaction? >> what i worry about most is not amnesty, but incredibly successful campaign toma stigmatize any immigration enforcementti whatsoever.ha when you have opposition across the country to a program called s

security, it's law enforcement. that's about a third of our budget. and it's not the part of the budget that's driving this -- it's not a part of the spending budget that's driving the deficit and debt much that's being driven by the growth in entitlements, which are becoming particularly for a good reason, which is that the american people are living longer, therefore taking much more money out of programs like medicare than they put in, and i suppose for reasons that are not so good, which is the cost of health care continues to go up. so we proved ourselves incapable of dealing with this crisis as part of the normal process of compromise, and so we created this cliff which was intentionally made so harmful that our assumption was that we would not allow ourselves to go over the cliff. because it would be so hurtful. and, again, that's why i say no deal, in this case, is not better than a bad deal. no deal is the worst deal because it means we go over the cliff. why isual thi is all this happe? for a lot of reasons. but one is that there are groups within both great political parties
